Recent advances in genomic studies have stimulated synergistic research in many cross-disciplinary areas. Genomic data presents enormous challenges for signal processing and statistics, which has led to the development of the new field of Genomic Signal Processing (GSP). The seventh IEEE International Workshop on Genomic Signal Processing and Statistics will provide an international scientific forum devoted to the area of GSP and its applications in system biology and medicine. The aim of the workshop is to address the emerging need for discovery in genomic research by interdisciplinary collaboration among researchers from a wide array of disciplines including signal processing, computer science, statistics, biology and medicine.


Topics of interest to the conference include:

  • Cellular modeling and metabolism
  • Complex biological systems
  • Computational biology and bioinformatics
  • Computational genomics and epigenomics
